• Welcome to the International Protestant Church of Brussels

    At IPC, EVERY person is welcome, for we celebrate the fact that no-one is excluded from God’s love

  • IPC is a different kind of congregation

    We celebrate our diversity; we are intentionally interdenominational and intentionally international.

    We see our diversity as a strength, reflecting the wonderful spectrum of God’s creation in the world around us.

Join us in our inclusive church. Everyone is welcome.

Mission of the month – Oasis Belgium

Mission of the Month – September

The  Oasis Welkom Project

Oasis works hand in hand with local communities, embassies, churches, and other institutions to bring about long-lasting change in the lives of women, children, and elderly people in Belgium. Their goal is to offer compassion where hurt is rampant and to bring community to places of loneliness. IPC has been working with Oasis for a number of years now.

This month’s mission, The  Oasis Welkom Project, helps women from Thailand get out of abusive relationships where they suffer violence and are often trafficked into exploitation here in Belgium.

Three elements of the project must be delivered to help these women:

  • Maintaining a hotline where women can explain their problems in Thai, English, or French
  • Providing a well-trained professional staff to visit and accompany these women whenever needed, making sure the necessary services (legal, medical, social) are accessible,
  • Providing these women with written information concerning their rights, where they can get help and advice about what to do when confronted with a violent situation. As soon as possible, Oasis plans to print and distribute a much needed updated version of their « Safety Plan » brochure in Thai, English and French.

Your donations will help Oasis to accomplish these 3 objectives, thus offering many vulnerable women the possibility of a safer, more stable environment and giving them hope for a better life!

Thank you for your generosity!
